Dear Colleagues,

Does anyone here have the offline code (or the path to get it) of BEP+BEm scheme, in order to calibrate the urbparm before running online simulations?
Tks in advance for any kind of tip or guidance.


Hi Joice,
We don't have the offline version of the BEP-BEM scheme.Below are the two papers for these schemes. Probably you can check with the developer?
